Attitudes, values and ideas

From elite attitudes to poverty and the influence of the career ambitions of national leaders, to citizens’ willingness to report corruption, this stream of DLP research examines wide-ranging issues.

Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, we move beyond a focus on incentives to look at what else motivates and influences different groups of actors, from politicians, elites and recipient governments, to disenfranchised groups, civil society and donors, and assess the implications for aid policy and practice.

DLP focuses on the crucial role of home-grown leaderships and coalitions in forging legitimate political settlements and institutions that promote developmental outcomes, such as sustainable growth, political stability and inclusive social development.
